‘Siemens Green School’ was held on February 12th at Poongsan Building Training Room with participation of 30 elementary school students from social welfare centers.
Approximately 50 participants including Siemens employee volunteers, instructors, and college student supporters conducted the environment and science educational program. Three main programs aiming to inform students about the current state of environmental challenges and to educate them about how to create a healthier Earth were conducted under the main themes of ‘Getting Closer to Energy’, ‘Learning about Energy’ and ‘Making Commitments’. In order to help students understand better and record on what they learn during the program, work-books were provided.
Furthermore, the video clip about carbon footprint was played to attract the interest of the students towards reducing carbon footprint. Meanwhile, this year marked the sixth year of ‘Siemens Green School’, and it became one of the representative educational citizenship programs in Korea. The Siemens Green School will continue towards local students by visiting elementary schools on a monthly basis and the next ‘Siemens Green School’ will be held on March 29 at JungHeung Elementary School in Bucheon-si, Gyeonggi-do.
